OK, I know this sounds crazy, but I was in an odd mood and since I was just grilling some chicken for caesar's salads I figured why not.
Pounded two boneless skinless breasts to a pretty uniform thickness, seasoned with kosher salt and lemon pepper.
Started them on the mini at 275 direct - raised on the miniwoo2, flipped every 3-4 minutes until they hit 130*. Then I opened the mini and it jumped to 500* in about a minute (I love that little sucker). Flipped the breasts once more after about 2 minutes, took them to 162*, and pulled them.
After a brief rest I sliced them for the salads and could not believe it. The exterior was nice and crisp without being tough and the interior was the most moist and juicy b/s breasts I have ever done. They were also incredibly tender - almost like salmon - just buttery and really really good.
Did I stumble across something here - has anyone ever done anything similar - did I get lucky with some incredibly good chicken - or did I imagine they were so good because of this ridiculous new year diet thing?
